As it is a newer motherboard, it doesnt have any, as ide slots are outdated, your best bet would be to replace ur current cd/dvd drives with SATA ones, newer drives are also smaller in length than older ide ones. You can get DVD/rws for around £15 (not sure about $) the motherboard has 4 sata slots so it should be enough for your harddrives and dvd drives.

If you prefer not to do this, you could buy a pci ide card, however this would be around £10, so your probably still better off upgrading to sata drives.
